Outside of work he passionately loved to coach youth baseball, camp, fish, and play golf, especially with his children and grand-children. Bob was known and loved for his enormous personality and quick sense of humor, especially his pithy "Bob-isms", and will be deeply missed by his wife, family, and friends.
